I'm not sure you got my point. If you have the default setting in your boot command like "boot -fs=amigafs ide0.0:amigaboot.of" then your system will still boot from the old amigaboot.of in BDH0: even if you have the update1 amigaboot.of installed on an FFS boot partition. Unless you have changed "ide0.0" to " ide0.1" in your boot command like MichaelMerkel suggested, then having a new amigaboot.of on an FFS Amiga boot partition will do nothing and you need to copy it to BDH0: for it to be used.
The "problem" i see is that *if* there is an updated version of the boot.of file which does fix some serious bug *or* introduce new features, then no one who has the boot.of file on the hidden first FFS partition will be able to use these...unless they are updating it manually.
I think that is the point xenic is trying to make clear...having updates to the boot.of but no automatic installing of them to the right place is probably not ideal...
